The Gunners have turned their season around in recent weeks with a string of domestic wins, and the French boss feels his team can challenge if they can maintain momentumArsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes that his side can continue to climb the table after a string of good results.
The Gunners seem to have turned around their poor start to the season with a run of five wins and a draw in the past month, which has seen them rise from the bottom of the Premier League table to seventh, claim a place in the League Cup quarter final, and put them top of their Champions League group.
Arsenal beat Chelsea 5-3 last Saturday in a thrilling game at Stamford Bridge, with Robin van Persie scoring a hat-trick, and Wenger believes that his side can still challenge for the title if they maintain their momentum.
“If we are capable of maintaining our run we will come back up quickly,” he told Arsenal's official website.
“I think we have made a big improvement in recent weeks by bridging the gap and I am personally convinced that the teams ahead of us will drop points.
“If we are capable of maintaining the pace in the league that we have shown recently then we will come back.”
Arsenal host West Bromwich Albion in Saturday’s Premier League tie, and they will be hoping to avoid a repeat of last year when the newly promoted Midlands team won 3-2.
“It was a big setback on the day,” added Wenger.
“We didn't turn up. That was a good lesson for us.
“Overall I feel we are in a completely different state of mind now. We have a desire to do well and I am convinced we will.”
